in defense, in the sequester, which, of course, would raise the deficit if they did that, and they can't agree to any tax increases at all, even though tax increases would reduce the deficit. >> catherine, isn't it their deficit in large part deficit? >> of course, but they have political amnesia. ideology is the science of idiots. here's one of these moments where when you live inside the box and refuse to look at empirical evidence, refuse to understand history to show us how economies work, how tax cuts or increases affect populations, then they are going to follow this line of idiocy over their own, i think, political cliff. and the partisanship is going to wreak tremendous havoc on the republican party in the upcoming elections. >> we have limited time. i want to go back to john harwood. is there a time here, john, when we're going to see the markets start to react or are we expecting most traders to wait until after the first to make big decisions? >> i think that's when they reacted. if we go over the cliff, even for a couple of days, you're going to see a reaction. i think at t

and devastating defense cuts will go into effect in 10 days. the house has already passed bills addressing the fiscal cliff. we passed a bill replacing the president's sequestered with irresponsible spending cuts. we did that last may. we passed a bill to stop all the tax hikes on the american people scheduled to take effect january 1, and we did that august 1. and we proposed plans over and over again that democrats used to support but now will not. i do not want taxes to go up, republican do not want texas to go up. but we only when the house. democrats continued to run washington. what the president has proposed so far simply will not do anything to solve our spending problems. he wants more spending and more tax hikes that will hurt our economy. and he simply will not deal honestly with entitlement reform and the big issues facing our country. we need significant spending cuts and real tax reform to address our long-term debt problem and pave the way for long-term growth and real growth in jobs in our country. we will continue to work with colleagues in the house and senate on a plan t

a treaty that says we will come to the defense of japan. but we have defense treaties with many other countries. it does not mean that we agree with the actions of all of our allies. trying to make that differentiation has been very difficult. >> i was wondering what it was like for you personally. you became an instant celebrity in china. people saw you buying your own coffee at starbucks, carrying your own luggage, and they could not imagine -- what was that like? >> it was overwhelming at first. it went viral. the pictures of us in the u.s.a. -- we were not even in china -- somehow when the virus. -- went viral. you were instantly recognized. peddlers and merchants on the great wall, we were asked by everybody for pictures. it was overwhelming, but for a flattering. the chinese have been very warm and gracious. >> how much does it matter to them that your father was born in china? >> it is a source of great pride that i am a chinese-american. my ancestors are all from china. my wife's family is from china as well. >> in some way, they expect you to take the chinese side and all of
to restore some of the defense cuts they say go just too far. in that quick time period, maybe a week or two, the president can position himself as, sort of the restorer of tax cuts for the middle class and of defense spending. gregg: right. >> thereby, i think, helping to ameliorate some of the problems that democrats faced over past three decades politically. gregg: what of john boehner though? steve latourette, who said, the same 50 or 60 chuckle heads who always screw things up, speaking of the tea party group. >> yeah. gregg: he said it is not really the speaker's fault. is it the speaker's fault? >> well, look, i think boehner was, he is in a bad spot. there are no good outcomes here for republicans. there have been no good policy outcomes for republicans. i watched the steven latourette comment, one of the things that struck me, these are the guys, 50 or 60 chuckle heads came here and screwed things up. the presumption congress was working just fine before they arrived. i would argue that it is nice we have people in congress who are actually serious about looking at the long term con
unemployment tax benefits for 2 million folks still unemployed. delay sequestration cuts for defense until later in the year. >> dave: john boehner on friday says he does not want to limit sequestration unless you also have equal spending cuts. there is no chance of finding an extra 500 billion in spending cuts. not as far as democrats stand. here is harry reid on where the senate democrats stand at the 11th hour. >> if we come up with something, it's not that easy, we are dealing with big numbers some of the stuff we do is very complicated. i think it was a very positive meeting. there was not a lot of hilarity in the meeting. everyone knows how important it is. it took an extended period of time as you know waiting for us. everybody, whatever we come up with, is going to be imperfect. some people aren't going to like it. some people like it less, but that's where we are. and i feel confident that we have an obligation to do the best we can and that was made very clear in the white house. we're going to do the best we can for the caucuses that we have and country that's waiting for us to
as a potential secretary of defense. >> senator kerry will go through and, he is an appropriate secretary of state. i think, for a light footprint, often -- he'll execute president obama's foreign policy confidently, i'm sure and i think senator hagel will either not be nominated or confirmed, he's more extreme than john kerry and, the obama white house says he's a republican and, republicans will go for him, but on foreign policy issues, especially the last several years, he is way to the left of president obama in terms of iran sanctions. he's -- iran sanctions, the vote which got 92, 97 votes in the senate and he voted against, and, a letter signed by 99 senators, denouncing russia and he refused to sign it and he's anti-israel and talked about the jewish lobby in 2006. and for a republican -- talking about the jewish lobby having too much influence on capitol hill, will that person be appropriate to be secretary of defense? i think senator hagel will not be nominated by president obama, he likes him, they went on this trip together and he likes the idea of having a republican and all
, not playing well, not getting things going on the defensive end. today, the ravens picked on cory webster all day in that giants' second dare. flacco played great on this day. baltimore going back to the postseason, division champs. w the goal again, can they get into the super bowl? they almost did it last year, coming up just short against the patriots. >> you think your super bowl pick before the season -- >> ravens and 49ers. and they looked great today. >>> bengals had a great day. >> first time since 1981, bengals in the playoffs back-to-back years. kenny anderson was the quarterback the last time they did it. so a long time ago. bengals get a touchdown on a ben roethlisberger interception. the steelers are just not dynamic enough on offense. they had all sorts of problems today. they do come from behind to tie it 10-10. but late in the fourth, josh brown, former steelers kicker, able to win it in the closing seconds. cincinnati wins 13-10. >> week 17 coming up. that's a wrap on week 16. thank you, sir. as always, thank you. more football coming up next on the "world news now" competiti
that defensive line, the go line and, basically president obama cannot get in, and there is -- what we know is the republicans have agreed to increasing tax revenue but we need to have the spending cuts. if we don't get them under control, what will happen is, we are seeing consumer sentiment is done and businesses uncertain and the economy will stay sluggish and not grow. >> rick: richard, last word, 20 seconds. does the president move at all on entitlements and spending cuts republicans are demanding? >> my forecast is, we'll end up with increased taxes after january 1. for people making $500,000 and over and again, most republicans east see that as a cut and i think the president put spending cuts, medicare, medicaid, cuts, hasn't talked about it much and put them on the table and we will have one-to-one spending cuts, tax increase, that will satisfy pretty much everybody. >> rick: good to see you, merry christmas and happy new year to you both. thanks. >> thank you. >> jamie: it is almost always good news, this time of year, people get temporary jobs and actually the number of temporary
the budget next year, half from domestic programs and half from defense programs. and now as the deadline draws close, experts are look at these cuts from a national security standpoint and warning one final time about their impact on the safety of our service members. >> it is going to affect the operational force that is deployed in terms of its you ability to maintain its equipment and get repair parts. that force is deployed around the world. it is not just the force in afghanistan that is being reduced. it would impact on the training of the force. and its preparedness to conduct other operations. >> white house officials say it is unclear what will happen with the sequester. on friday republican senator john mccain said he doesn't see how a deal gets done without addressing these across the board cuts which could cost a lot of contractors their jobs. >> now, the large defense contractors will probably be okay. they have significant cash reserves most of them. the smaller contractors would have trouble getting their lines of credit extended, trouble keeping their employees if they ca

more points of defense in a school than just one armed guard that would be very visible and if someone were maniacal enough to come and attack a school they'd probably take that guard out first and there are school districts around the country and one in texas where i've spoken with the superintendent northwest of dallas, and the whole state of utah permits concealed carry of teachers and it's worked out very well. these have not become targets because i think most of the criminal class understands that an armed victim is too dangerous to take on, if they can go some other way to do their crime. >> there are some assumptions there and that is, of course, the question of mental health. you're seeing those of this side like to commit a crime and they're aware of these limitations and these challenges and we just look at columbine as senator feinstein was saying yesterday in addressing mr. lapierre's comment and she was saying look at columbine, there were two armed guards there. that did not work. >> they fled, whereas if you are under attack and you have a gun then it's rather reasonabl
on the possible nomination of senator hagel as the next secretary of defense. leon panetta has not announced a departure date. off and o fawn, chuck hagel's former staffers worked through the weekend trying to solidify support, but you hear concerns on both sides about his nomination. >> yeah. the thing is that will be causing some questions inside the senate particularly. there's been so much focused on susan rice, and the secretary of state. i don't know that people have been worrying as much about the next defense secretary. if there's anything you can say about him, he is his own man. while i think everyone likes him in the senate, it's not entirely clear how he would behave. there are some questions, for example, about his history on the homosexuals in the military. there's some questions about that. it's not entirely clear to me this will rise to the level as it did with susan rice, who remove her nomination in the last month or so. i don't know what the other options are, and with the secretary of state issue, you always had senator kerry as the option, which i think in the senate peo
to have the first set of fingerprints on significant spending cuts, whether it's defense ovr entitlement program. >> thank you. and merry christmas to you and your team there. >> merry christmas to you guys. >> thank you. >>> in terms of politics and a deal, wyoming senator says he thinks that the white house want it is country to go over the fiscal cliff to give the president leverage. >> when i listen to the president, i think the president is eager to go over the clip for political purposes. i think he sees a political victory at the bottom of the cliff. he gets the additional tax revenue for programs, cut the military which democrats have been calling for for years and he gets to blame republicans for it. >> with me now in studio is democrat gerald nadler. that was john barasso. you are a watchdog for graphics. we put up the wrong graphic there. your reaction to the statement there that the president wants the country to go over the fiscal cliff, they think it's for better democratic leverage. >> that's nonsense. the president made extraordinary concessions to the republicans to try
